All right, enough with all this "reporting" stuff. It's time to do the real work again.
With that in mind, I'm rolling up my sleeves today and digging deep to bring you this list of the 15 best nicknames in all of MMA. I report. You decide. Wait, no. I also decide. Thanks, myself.
Now the parameters. First, this covers active fighters only. Second, this has nothing to do with a fighter's record or reputation. Third, rankings are based on creativity, originality and effectiveness (i.e., how successfully did it accomplish its goal of being intimidating, funny, etc.).
Fourth, finally and most importantly, don't expect the same old, same old here. Sure, there are plenty of big names on the list, but don't just expect "The Dean of Mean," "The Axe Murderer" and bada bing bada boom we're done. No. We go the extra mile in this space, so prepare for some new blood. Some new nickname blood.
